Hannah Kubbins

Hannah Kubbins

Hannah Kubbins was born and raised in Bainbridge, OH outside of Cleveland. She graduated from Denison University in 2017 with a Bachelor of the Arts in English Literature and Narrative Journalism. Immediately after graduation, Hannah started working for Ohioans to Stop Executions (OTSE) - a statewide death penalty abolition organization based in Columbus. In the span of five years, she’s been promoted to the role of Executive Director and hastaken the organization from a small operation to a politically sophisticated entity that is running the statewide legislative campaign to repeal Ohio’s death penalty. Her work in death penalty work is what radicalized her against government control. She has worked with dozens of wrongfully convicted men who spent decades awaiting execution for a crime they did not commit. These errors, along with the enormous cost of the death penalty to taxpayers, compelled her to examine the other ways the government negatively impacts citizens. In her free time, she enjoys tending to her collection of 50+ houseplants, treasure hunting for vinyl records, spoiling her two cats, and hiking.
